Underwater Kinetics C4 eLed

I bought a Underwater Kinetics C4 eLed from a friend of our local diving club The Abyss

The item was new in his box.

It is really nice, light and bright….. I am waiting to find some time for a night dive to test it.

I am a fun of Underwater Kinetics lights, but of course we cannot compare them to Kowalski Xenon lights…. but the eLed is a good light anyway


Kernel 2.6.14

Hmmm, a kernel release…
So ? Just another kernel release ?
Should i upgrade ?

No, wait for a few days. Everything works ok with 2.6.13

These are the usual questions after a kernel release 🙂

This time since it was a weekend i want to give a try.

The ipw2100 make it way to the kernel tree. Nice no more another compile for my wireless laptop network card to work.

The vesafb-tng patches works ok with the new kernel. Nice i will not miss my 1024×768 terminal 🙂

The suspend2 team hasn’t release a new version so it will stay a couple of days ( maybe a week) with out hibernation.

The vmware needs the usual vmware-any-any-update 🙂

It took me a couple of hours but everything is running smoothly.

Nice work kernel guys


OpenBSD Turns 10

Reading slashdot is nice. I could have missed the birtday of OpenBSD 🙂

10 years have passed since Theo de Raadt did the commit of his Makefile into the CVS

Happy birthday OpenBSD


Inverting the F Lock

Some times Microsoft does good work on hardware. That is keyboards and mouse.

The problem is that they do it in their own way => Friendly for the user. Or as they think that is friendly 🙂

On the office keyboards the Function keys has been replaced by functions eg Help,Undo,Redo,New etc.

But i don’t want to press the F-lock every time i do an Alt-F4 to close the window.

If you want to invert the f-lock download and import the registry fix from the following site

Finally….. Pressing Alt-F4 works 🙂
